HATCH, Peter Calvin R.C.M.P. (S.Sgt. ret'd.)
Born on May 25, 1933, in Red Head Cove, Newfoundland, Peter was the son of the late Nicholas and Johanna (Duggan) Hatch. He began his career with the RCMP in 1951 in Ottawa at A Division. During the course of his career he held positions in Montreal, North Sydney, Halifax, Charlottetown, Burin, St. John's, before retiring as Staff Sergeant, Sub Division NCO in the Corner Brook, NL Detachment. In 1961 Peter was selected for a course in Cryptography (codes and ciphers) with the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals at their school in Kingston, Ontario. This set off his lifelong addiction to cryptograms and cryptoquotes which led him to buy just about every newspaper, magazine and book that published them. After retirement he became an insurance underwriter with Occidental Life Insurance Company in Halifax, a career which he thoroughly enjoyed. On moving to the Annapolis Valley he settled into the field of security with Minas Basin Pulp and Power Company in Hantsport.
Peter had an intense love of history and engrossed himself in learning. He could not seem to absorb enough and would spend hours researching and reading. There wasn't a subject he didn't enthusiastically embrace. He was the quintessential storyteller and enjoyed spinning a good yarn. He thoroughly enjoyed keeping the Newfoundland language alive through his letters to the editor of local papers. He once described himself as a frustrated Bob Cratchit and hence became involved in various associations usually involving areas of finance. His love of finance led him to positions as the founding President of the Mercy Convent School PTA, St. John's (the first PTA in the Catholic School System in NL), Secretary/Treasurer and later President of St. Bonaventure's College Men's Association, St. John's, member of the Finance Committee Parish Councils St. John's, Corner Brook, NL and Windsor, NS and Treasurer of the Orchard Valley Branch of the Federal Superannuates National Association, Kentville, NS for almost 20 years. Peter was also a proud member of the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program with Canada Revenue Agency, assisting seniors and persons in need with tax returns and related matters.
He is survived by his son, John William Hatch, Gaspereau Valley, Wolfville; his daughter, Janet Harnum and son-in-law, Robert Harnum, Kentville; grandsons, Sullivan Peter Harnum and Mackenzie Coyote Harnum, at home; a sister, Joan Marie McNaul, Toronto, Ontario; and special cousin Annie Broderick, St. John's. Besides his parents, Nicholas and Johanna (Duggan) Hatch; he was predeceased by his wife of 35 years, the former Stella Marie Hines (1996); his daughter, Sharon Anne Hatch (2004); brother, William Hatch (1980) of Toronto, Ontario.
Funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Monday, January 4, 2016, in St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church, 339 King Street, Windsor, with the Rev. Father John MacPherson officiating.

MacDONALD, Michael Douglas
Michael graduated from St. Mary's University in Halifax with BSc and BEd degrees. His work experience took him to Swaziland, Africa, with the World University Service of Canada (WUSC), where he taught high school science and math for four years. He then spent an additional year doing walkabouts in various African countries, before returning to Canada. Michael taught parasitology and entomology classes at Dalhousie University, Halifax. He worked for some years with the environmental consulting firm, Jacques Whitford and at the time of his death was working as a Terrestrial Ecologist at Stantec in Dartmouth. It would take pages to properly describe Michael's attributes and the tremendous positive influence he had on family, friends and colleagues. He had a deep passion for the natural world, reptiles in particular, that was fostered at a young age by Eldon Pace of Shubenacadie, NS and Frank Weed of Big Cypress Swamp, FL. He was an avid birder, adventurer and a brilliant biologist and naturalist with special interests in reptiles, amphibians and botany with an irrepressible desire to share with others all the wonders he encountered. He was a gifted artist and illustrator.
Michael was a remarkable story teller, mesmerizing countless listeners with his natural ability to entertain and inform in a manner that left everyone wanting to hear more. His enthusiasm for and appreciation of nature were legendary and he easily regaled others with accounts of his many adventures in the wild. Not only could he hold his own on almost any topic but usually educated all who had the pleasure of his conversation and company. Michael was kind and caring and would do anything to help others. He always took time when he could, to be with his family and friends. He will be sorely missed by all who loved and admired him.
A celebration of Michael's life will be held at JA Snow Funeral Home, 339 Lacewood Dr. Halifax, NS at 2 pm on January 10, 2016. Guests are encouraged to wear shirts relating to nature; like turtles, birds and lizards and bright colours to pay tribute to Michael. In lieu of flowers, donations to assist with reptile care can be made in Michael's name to Homeward Bound City Pound Animal Shelter, 201 Brownlow Ave # 9, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, B3B1W2.

STRONG, Elizabeth Yvonne
Elizabeth was primarily a proud stay at home mother and a dedicated volunteer in her community. After her daughter Sara was grown, she worked at the local Scotiabank. She enjoyed the friendship of her co-workers and members of the community. Elizabeth was a shining example of how a good heart and common sense could create a spectacular human being. Her legacy will be the love, dedication and commitment that were her ever constant personality traits. Her daughter provides a lasting tribute, embodying all of her mother's goodness and goes forward in her mother's footsteps.
Elizabeth leaves behind her one precious daughter, Sara (Jerry) Holland. Sara and Elizabeth's relationship transcended the mother daughter bond. They were very special together and could complete each other's unspoken thoughts with a look or a gesture to one another. Sara's love for Elizabeth kept her strong during their final hours together. Sara and her husband Jerry will forever remember Elizabeth's kind words and loving manner. Elizabeth also leaves behind many siblings, some of which she had special relationships with. She was a kind and loving sister, who took this role very seriously. Elizabeth fulfilled a very necessary maternal role in the lives of her younger brothers and sisters and became a very important caregiver during their formative years. Her endless love and nurturing through difficult family circumstances ensured them a safe and secure place to guide them into adulthood. She is beloved by them, their spouses as well as nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. Also left to grieve Elizabeth is a special little girl Chloe and Elizabeth's two favourite fur babies, Bart and Eli McFly. Elizabeth was predeceased by her longtime partner, David Boyce. Their life together was one based on a deep love and partnership.
At this time, Sara would like to express her sincere gratitude to the 4 west nursing staff, the Palliative Care team, Bernadette Holland, and Elizabeth's special niece Lisa Penny, for their compassion and generosity throughout this difficult time. Visitation for Elizabeth will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2015 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at J.M. Jobes Funeral Home, 635 Main St., Sydney Mines.
